Exploring the history of medical imaging alongside reflections on the recent death of the director’s mother in post-Soviet Russia, Goryainova attempts to comprehend the complex subject of corporeality. Bile made its world premiere at the International Documentary Filmfestival Amsterdam. U.S. premiere.
